So far i have booked some pretty average vacations:

Feb 18-25 Woodstone at Massanutten (presidents week)
May 25-28 Hershey Suites (Memorial weekend)
July 1-8 Wyndham Patriots Place (4th of July)

And am still looking for something for late August(beach, pool, sun) and a Selfish(Daddy only trip) around the end of December to someplace VERY warm...


What about you guys, do you have any place fun booked for 2012?

We're Not Good At Planning Far Ahead. (Shux Upon Us, Eh?)

Vacation Village At Parkway, Kissimmee FL, Jan. 7-14, 2012.

Wyndham Cypress Palms, Kissimmee FL, Jan. 14-21, 2012.

We snagged both reservations via RCI's 3-day $199 (+ tax) Extra Vacation Getaway sale that was extended to 4 days & later brought back for a couple of days because the web site was extra-glitchy during exactly the days that the sale was going on.

I'm really excited for my 2012!!! (and my 2013, actually).

February -- Marriott Aruba Ocean Club
April -- Marriott Cypress Harbour
April -- Disney Cruise (Western Caribbean)
June -- HGVC Kings Land
June -- Marriott Maui Ocean Club
October -- Westin Princeville

In 2013, I hope to do our February trip to Harborside (or Westin St. John if really lucky) using StarOptions. For the June trip, I've made an exchange with a DVC TUGger and we'll go to Aulani, followed then by our Week 25 Maui Ocean Club.

And one of the best parts..... by renting out my second MOC week (and some creative trading, if I do say so myself), I have the MFs covered for 2012 and a possibility to repeat this for 2013 too. Not sure if this will always work, but when it does come together, I'm very happy!

The cruise of course....ouch!! But the kids are the right age....

Best,

Greg

My 2012 is pretty well booked up:

New Year's Week: Waikiki (home resort)
First two weeks in June: Waikiki again, and then Kauai (both home resorts)
Late August: Road Trip, from Reno, NV, to Monterey, CA (hotels and staying with family)
Late October: Riviera Maya (the only 2012 exchange, through VRI)

2013 so far only has us visiting Yellowstone Park and Grand Tetons in June, then through Moab, Utah, to Santa Fe later in the Summer.
